MIRA Bakers Digital Kitchen scale with removable stainless steel bowls

MIRA Bakers Digital Kitchen Scale

*With Removal Stainless Steel Bowl

This first-place scale offers some features worth considering.

Removable Stainless Steel Bowl

While most scales have a plate or tray and require you to use your own bowl or plate, this MIRA scale gives you the convenience of an included bowl - terrific for measuring liquid ingredients or mixed recipes like salads.


Blue Backlight

MIRA’s display gives you the ability to see your items weight more clearly, especially in low-light conditions.

Features and Specifications:

  • simple to use
  • can handle up to 11 lbs.
  • comes with 3 AAA batteries
  • tare function for zeroing out

As of February 2015, 89% of reviewers give it five stars, saying that it provides form as well as function, the digital display is easy to read, and that the bowl is perfect for measuring salads, liquids, and other contents.

I was looking for a scale that was easy to store and easy to read. This fit the bill. The bowl is large enough that I can weigh all the dry ingredients for baking. That was a surprise for me. If you are looking for a scale that is worth the money and really works, get this one.

By far the best customer service experience I've ever had. So guess who just earned themselves a lifelong customer.”

review of Epica Accupro Digital Kitchen Scale

​Epica Accupro Digital Kitchen Scale

The fourth scale in our comparison is the Epica Accupro. White it carries most of the features of the previous three scales, it stands out in two ways.

Economical

At a sale price of $14.49 (as of 2/10/2015), it is the only one of the five scales to come in under $20, making it more accessible for customers on a budget.

Small and simple

A great entry-level scale without confusing bells and whistles, the Epica Accupro scale has most of the same features as the previous three: ability to tare out the weight of a plate or bowl, measurement in ounces/pounds/grams/kilograms, an 11-pound capacity, and an easy-clean chrome surface.

Features and Specifications:

  • requires 2 AAA batteries
  • tare function for zeroing out
  • 11 pound capacity
  • easy to read display

As of this writing, nearly a thousand customers gave the Epica Accupro a five-star rating, referencing its entry-level price and accuracy. A customer offered this praise:

I am quite happy with this scale, I have checked it against a 250 gram test weight meant to be used on a scientific lab quality balance and the scale measures it at either 250 or 251 grams which I consider to be very accurate.”

Ozeri Epicurean LED Kitchen Scale with Removable Glass Platform review

Ozeri Epicurean LED Kitchen Scale​

*with Removable Glass Platform​

Last but not least, the Ozeri Epicurean rounds out our top five kitchen scales in a significant way.

Highest weight capacity

With a weight capacity of a whopping 18 lbs., the Epicurean by Ozeri can handle the heftiest kitchen measurements, even your Thanksgiving turkey!

Stylish design

This scale features a removable glass platform for simple clean-up, but users really appreciate the glossy black surface that looks elegant while hanging out on a countertop.

Features and Specifications

  • uses 4 AAA batteries
  • 18 pound capacity
  • tare function for zeroing out
  • high contract LED screen
  • measures in grams and ounces
  • sleek design

The Epicurean has fewer reviews than the other four scales, but as of February 2015 it had received 134 five-star reviews out of a total of 153 provided.

I do a great deal of baking and am the kind of baker who combines ingredients by weight, not volume. Over the years, I have owned several scales, but the Ozeri Epicurean tops them all. It's beautiful to look at; its curved base and large LED readout make it easy to read, even with a 10qt bowl on the platform, and its size and weight give a sense of real substance. The sleek design, mirror-smooth finish and easily removable glass weighing platform make it easy to clean, and its feather-touch on/off/tare and oz/grams controls make using it a real pleasure. Other scales will come and go, but this is the one I'm sticking with!”
